12 Days of Christmas-Chorizo Cheese Dip
This 12 Days of Christmas-Chorizo Cheese Dip is a great crowd pleaser!! We absolutely loved this dip!! It takes you away from the little nibbles that are so often seen at Christmas. If you are doing an appetizer party and need something substantial, this dip is it. Every man in the room will be crowded around it. Hearty, filling, spicy, cheesy, it has a guys appetizer written all over it. Serve it for the next football game to over the holidays. It isn’t too spicy so Amber gobbled it down also. You will love this dip for your next gathering.
